Hi ho hi ho its active transport to DUG we go

Donna Buckley

Our year eleven VET students from the Cybersecurity course had the opportunity to take a tour of the DUG Super Computer in West Perth - a sustainable high-performance computer processing (HPCaaS) to analyse large datasets. Their award winning immersion cooling system used by DUG is highly energy efficient compared to other super computers.

The learning goals of this excursion was to allow students to reflect on the impact of computing and data analysis, and how sustainability will be an important factor at the forefront of our technological future here in WA. So it made sense for student to travel to this excursion using low carbon active transport.

Contacting Get On Board https://getonboard.transperth.wa.gov.au/Teachers we were able to easily access a suitable travel itinerary by walking, bus and train and access current insurance documents. Even when there was a last minute change to the excursion date, Get on Board made it easy for us to modify the excursion itinerary.

Beautiful weather, exercise and social interactions along the way. This was a wonderful way to spend the day.
